“REB” brings a Conscience sound to the Global Attack Mixtape Series!

Posted by: Scott

Born on July 12, 1988 in Newark, New Jersey, Derrick Avent who stages under the name “Reb” moved to a small town in

REB

the south known as Blakely, Ga at the age of 5 where he attended school and graduated in 2006. At the age of 17, He moved to Atlanta, Ga to start his new life. Music has been a part of his daily life since the tender age of 12. Rapping over tapes or whatever source he can use to get his music out. Growing up was tough in his neighborhood being that it wasn’t enough jobs and his mother raising five kids. Opportunities never showed up for him as it did for others but that didn’t discourage him. It actually made him a stronger individual. Never having anything at an early age made him humble and thankful for the things that he did obtain in life.

 

REB IN DEEP THOUGHT

His major influences in music is Bone Thugz-N-Harmony, Jay-Z, 2Pac, Nas, B.I.G, Method Man & Redman, Fabolous, Young Jeezy, Drake, Lil Wayne and J. Cole. His style of music has no limitations. Whether its Country or Techno, Reb always gained new ideas about music by expanding his mind. Personal hardships conflicted him but that didn’t alter his speed much. “As long as you strive, you will drive,” as he put it. Finally getting over the fear of taking risks, he decided to pursue his dream of a rapper. He knew that it will be a tough road but with his poised personality, Reb knew he would go farther than he perceived.

 

Life is full of possibilities and you never know how great they are until you’re on your course to actually achieving it. He put his trust in God and stepped  out of the door to Life. Reb always had a passion for music but he never expected it to go anywhere. So he thought of it as a hobby. Starting to build more confidence with every song he wrote, he realized it was more than a hobby. Its a way of life.  His east coast swagger with a hint of southern hospitality puts Reb in a hybrid category. Reb writes about the hardships of the ghetto, everyday life, the dream, and positivity and of course “The Game.” If he knows a plan to succeed, He is very humble to pass it on to others.

REB CHILLAXIN

 

His plan is to get the “Young Movement” to start thinking positive with positive motivational raps and to have an open mind. If you cut off everyone else feedback, then you are one dimensional. “And in this world, that is no way to be,”Reb states. He know this life won’t be easy but he has accepted this life as his own. In God he trusts.

Heaven just got another Dogg.

nate dogg the westcoast don

Sadly, after years of battling deteriorating health, rapper and LBC native Nate Dogg (whose real name was Nathaniel Hale) passed away at the age of 41.

No exact cause of death was immediately released when the family announced his death to the Long Beach Press Telegram, though the rapper suffered two massive strokes in recent years, one in 2007 which left him partially paralyzed, and another in 2008.

Nate Dogg was a four-time Grammy nominee and a major participant in the West Coast G-Funk sound, contributing memorable and chart-topping hooks to hits spanning the past two decades, starting with his heavy featuring on Dr. Dre‘s The Chronic. He went on to add his smooth, laid-back sound to Warren G‘s “Regulate,” Dre and Snoop Dogg‘s “The Next Episode,” Ludacris‘ “Area Codes” and Eminem‘s “Shake That.” His most recent solo album, Nate Dogg, was released in 2008.

Frequent collaborator and longtime friend Snoop (back in 1991, then unknown pals Snoop, Nate and Warren G formed a rap group called 213) was the first to publicly mourn the loss.

“We lost a true legend n hip hop n rnb,” he tweeted last night. “One of my best friends n a brother to me since 1986 when I was a sophomore at poly high where we met.

Bobby V. – Words

Posted by: Scott

BOBBY VALENTINO

Born in Mississippi but raised in Atlanta, smooth R&B crooner Bobby Wilson (also known as Bobby V) had a hard time convincing his skeptical parents that the music business was the place for him. When the 16-year-old Wilson hooked up with the Organized Noize Productions team, his parents knew he was serious and that his dream of a record deal was entirely possible.

With a group of friends, he formed Mista, a Boyz II Men-styled singing group that made some waves with their single “Blackberry Molasses.” The group’s self-titled album appeared in 1996 but failed to match the single’s success. A second, unreleased album was recorded with producer Timbaland’s help but management problems split the group and Wilson decided to focus on college. After earning his degree in 2003, he returned to demo work. One of his demos ended up in the hands of Ludacris, who made Wilson the first R&B singer in the rapper’s DTP (Disturbing tha Peace) crew. The sultry “Slow Down” announced the singer’s rebirth as a DTP member in early 2005 and soon became a BET and radio favorite. As the ballad was landing on numerous schools’ prom ballots, Def Jam/DTP released his self-titled debut, a Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart-topper. Special Occasion equaled that success in 2007, yet Wilson left his label on good terms and aligned with EMI. His first album with EMI, titled The Rebirth and released through his boutique label, Blu Kolla Dreams, was released in February 2009 and featured productions from longtime collaborators Tim & Bob, as well as Carlos McKinney and Raphael Saadiq. Wilson was known as Bobby Valentino until a legal settlement was reached with a British Bobby Valentino.

Black- Steele lays down the Iron fist on the Global Attack Mixtape Series!

Posted by: Scott

Black- Steele

BLACK-STEELE
Clyde Black and D. Steele are the next generation of Hip-hop who are about to change the game with a Nu flava in ya ear – hitting the industry with a power punch.  And if you don’t know just like the late great lyricist Biggie Smalls made noise about, now you know.  A chance meeting at a local studio, Clyde Black and D. Steele met when Black ran over studio time as most artists do.  The two hadn’t seen each other in years.  Both had been grinding as solo artists, creating underground music but after a few years of knocking on the closed doors of Hip-Hop as soloists, they decided to kick it in as a group.  Backed by amazing production skills and sharpened lyrical abilities, “most sought after” is their current rating in the industry – but a thousand miles begin with a step – check out how the dream started.
*BLACK*

After Clyde Black had hustled on the show circuit for a few years on his own, he tried to collaborate with childhood friends Byrd and Hank. Byrd aka The Terminator, Hank aka the Destroyer and Black aka The Enforcer seemed like I good plan, but it didn’t last long and Black moved on.  He also tried rhyming at small functions with other different groups including his cousins from the Bronx called, East Side Rush, and finally with a clique ran by a cat named Kobe from Harlem.   Black, living in Harlem, had heard about Kobe through his school mate and was told he had to audition for Kobe’s clique.  Black’s first time auditioning, he rhymed over the phone at work and after he was done spitting 3 hot sixteen’s, Kobe said, “Yo dogs, you in. Call me after work”.   Black rocked with them for about a year and felt like he’d found a home until Kobe fell on hard times – the studio got shut down.

STR8HU$TLE ENT.

Yet life must go on and Black began vibing with another group – S.L.A.M., through his friend Dandy Don.  He’d attend group meetings and absorbed all that he could about being in a HipHop group. They were able to open up a show for Ms. Jones (a hook up through D.J. Chill Will from Dougie Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew); but the group broke up, and once again things were up in the air.  Life started getting in the way; there were brushes with the law, baby momma drama and no hip-hop.   A few years later, Black’s boy Big Bear hooked him up with a local producer and engineer, Lord Itill.   Itill created a small home studio in the Bronx where Black came to record song after song, perfecting his craft as a soloist and being featured on other tracks with underground artist like Lady Mahogany (I Love U), Silky (Hurry Home) and Reservoir Dogs (Black Queens).  It was at this studio where Black hooked up with Steele.  After he heard Steele put some beats down; he knew that together, they could put down something special.
*STEELE*
Hailing from the infamous Soundview Projects in the Bronx, Steele followed in the footsteps of the legendary Mr. Freeze (of the Jazzy Five Mc’s) and Mc Sundance, both from Soundview; he started out doing the beat box and writing rhymes.   Sundance was the first MC for Africa Bam Bata and the Zulu Nation.  Steele got his first studio experience rhyming with the original Jazzy J and Mr. Freeze and also learned to produce – they were blown away by his talent at such a young age.  Word got out and he began producing records for neighborhood friends, but the sudden passing of his beloved mother brought things to an abrupt halt.  Steele had to drop out of high school to take care of himself and his little brother. In the rat race, he struggled to survive and sometimes worked two jobs to put food on the table, but his hip-hop dreams would never fade. Over the years, he was able to purchase an MPC 60 and start a home studio – but the need to make ends meet was stronger and soon, he had to sell his equipment in order to do so.

> As Steele continued to persist, he got the chance to work as an A and R for Radical Records. His burning desire for the stage was so overwhelming that he networked several connections and then left to start his own thing. Steele produced records for underground groups and performed with Radical Records artists; Prince Dominique, Stress-Out and Crossfire. He then started producing music for his own songs putting out the underground classic, “Bronx Encore”, which was the number 1 record in the S.U.R.E. record pool.  His projects were created at Lord Itill’s studio where he would bang out beats at an obscene rate.  Steele was working with one of his groups when he bumped into Clyde Black.  Black heard the track they were doing and immediately wanted to work with Steele.  Steele heard a few of Black’s rhymes and Black-Steele was born.
Starting with the single “I Got Ya”, they broke into the S.U.R.E. record pool as the greatest gainer and number 15 on the charts. As of late, they’ve been making noise with the street anthem, ” Gangsta Lean”. Black and Steele managed to put together the album, Hustle Musik: Journey to my Destiny, Out in 2010, the lead single “Get Back” showcases Clyde Black’s superior wordplay and D. Steele’s raspy voice, dope lyrics and unmatched production style.

Young the Dream

Young The Dream started rapping seriously about the age of 18 I grew up in Oakland,CA in the heart of the Bay Area. As a kid I used to watch MTV and CMC all the time all I ever wanted to be was a famous rapper,so I invested in my own studio equipment from then on its been nonstop for me I’m talking about late nights in the studio almost everyday whenever I have a chance to make music I made sure I stayed working. Threw this long road I’ve dealt with my shady labels and shady folks so I feel like that made me a really experienced young hiphop artist with a lot of good music to give,there’s not too many Latin artist who rap the way I do I feel like I can be a good role model for young musicians who have the same ambitions
